Tour d’Art Festivals at Riverfest Exceptional As Always

 

Clarksville, TN2012 Riverfest - 25thA highlight of Riverfest every year is the display of artistic talent from the Montgomery County area. Three shows—the Senior (Downtown Artists Co-op), the High School (Customs House Museum) and the Amateur and Professional Divisions (Smith-Trahern Mansion)—feature exceptional talent in all age groups. Juror Suzanne Gaudette Way chose winners from about half the entries that were submitted in the juried shows; even sorting the artworks into the final display was an extensive job this year.

Ellen Kanervo, Executive Director of Clarksville Arts and Heritage, presented the awards for the High School Division. The exhibition was held at Customs House Museum in the main gallery at 5:00pm on Friday evening.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 9th, 2012

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesThe economic data were mixed. The ISM Manufacturing Index disappointed in August, but the Non-Manufacturing Index was a bit stronger than expected. Unit auto sales picked up. The ADP estimate of private-sector payrolls rose by 201,000. However, the BLS nonfarm payroll figure rose 96,000 (median forecast: +135,000), with a net revision of -42,000 to the two previous months. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1% (from 8.3%), but that was due to a drop in labor force participation (I wouldn’t read much into that, it’s well within the normal range of uncertainty).

The European Central Bank unveiled its bond-buying program (dubbed Outright Monetary Transactions). The OMT is designed to address dislocations in the government bond market (that is, higher borrowing costs in Italy and Spain). It’s not monetary stimulus, but it should improve the transmission of existing monetary policy. Bond purchases will be unlimited, concentrated in maturities of three to five years, and conditional on fiscal progress. The OMT averts a near-term crisis, but doesn’t solve the region’s underlying problems. «Read the rest of this article»

More study is needed to know whether improved survival in other patients is due to lengthier resuscitation efforts per se, or other factors.

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – More patients are revived and survive cardiac arrest when treated in hospitals that generally perform resuscitation efforts for a longer amount of time, according to a new study published in Lancet.

Researchers studied records of 64,339 patients suffering an in-hospital cardiac arrest at 435 hospitals taking part in the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation program. As with earlier studies, the investigators found that most patients who were successfully resuscitated responded early on during the arrest, but they also noted that some survivors appear to require efforts that take more time. «Read the rest of this article»
